Grid will be fully playable to the public for the first time at gamescom 2019.

If you’re headed to gamescom 2019 later this month, and you like racing games, you should give Grid a try.

Just head over to the Deep Silver & Friends stand in Hall 9 or hit up the Microsoft Xbox booth in Hall 8.

In Grid, you will compete against AI drivers with 400 different race personalities. During this time you will form not only a rivalry with these drivers, but battle nemeses.

F1 racer Fernando Alonso signed on as a Race Consultant for Grid and also appears in-game. You will go up against him and his Renault R26 F1 car in a final showdown event.

Announced in May, the game spans four continents with plenty of streets and race circuits to drive. These various locations will feature Circuit, Street Racing, Ovals, Hot Laps, Point-to-Point and World Time Attack.

Cars include GT, Touring, Stock, Muscle, Super-Modified and more.

Grid releases October 11 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It will arrive on Stadia in November.
